    • Dear Nisar, it is a bad luck for u and I have seen that many employees worked in the institutions on adhoc basis and most of their life passed and they become overage in these institutions but at the time of regularization or at the time of regular job, they are not given any concession in the age relaxation.

    Hi, I applied for a job in govt university. I was shortlisted for test and interview. My interview was excellent and in there minutes of meeting they clearly stated that I was selected for this job but on technical grounds he is rejected. And the technical ground was that I am over age. In the advertisement it was written that on the closing date of application age on applicant should be 35 years where as I am 35 years and 10 months.
    Now does anybody knows any law or case judgment that can help me ?

  23. ghulam ali says:

    my question is that some one whose age is 44 and junior school teacher recruitment final age limit is 30, is this person is eligible for this post or not. can this person get relaxation or not.

    • Dear Ghulam Ali, you can try for the same. As I have seen a case about 1 year ago in which a Federal Govt Employee of age 43 tried to Appear in PPSC through proper channel. He appeared in the exam and passed the exam. But at the time of Interview he was rejected just on the base that he was 43 and he does not had the Punjab Govt Service. I think according to this if you are working in the Punjab Govt then you can apply for the same.

  27. Abdul Rashid says:

    please explain this:
    iii)Government servants who have completed two years continuous government service on the closing date for receipt of applications. 10 years, up to the age of 55 years.

    What does it mean. what is the maximum age of the post applied for. If a person having age above 40 and applied for the post in BPS-14 is he applicable for the age? .. Kindly publish the chart of the maximum age validation in BPS WISE.
